This study aim to identify the level of gross motor development in Aboriginal children aged seven, eight, and nine years and distinguish it by using a scale of Gross Motor Development Quotient (GMDQ). This study was an ex post facto involving 99 subjects (M : 57, P : 42 ) aged between seven (M=6.53, SD=.34), eight (M=7.45, SD=.33), and nine years (M=8.56, SD=.34). Ulrich's rough motor development test was being conducted to measure the level of gross motor development of Aboriginal students for locomotor and manipulative skills. The scores transcribed for GMDQ score. Scores were analysed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 17.0 for comparing means gross motor achievements of Aboriginal students according to age seven, eight, and nine years. The results showed that there were significant differences for GMDQ Aboriginal students aged seven, eight, and nine years [F (2, 117) = 40.264, p< .05]. For the analysis of the Post Hoc Test, all three age groups of Aboriginal students showed significant differences for GMDQ score (p <0.05). The study shows that there are GMDQ differences according to age level. The development of gross motor of aboriginal students aged seven years can be said to be in normal development, while the aboriginal students aged eight and nine years had poor motor development.
